What's a High-Risk Pregnancy?

A high-risk pregnancy is when you or your baby have an increased risk for complications during pregnancy or after birth. Our maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) physicians, also known as high-risk obstetricians, have specialized training in caring for high-risk pregnancies.

Should I See a High-Risk Obstetrician?

With specialized care, most high-risk pregnancies end with the delivery of a healthy baby by a healthy mother. Rely on a maternal-fetal medicine doctor to help keep you and your baby as healthy as possible if you experience:

  • Complications in your current pregnancy, such as preeclampsia, bleeding, infections or preterm labor
  • Complications in a prior pregnancy, such as miscarriage, preterm birth, preeclampsia, cesarean section or stillbirth
  • Multiple gestation (twins, triplets or more)
  • Pregnancy after in vitro fertilization (IVF)
  • Family history of genetic disease, disability at birth or childhood condition
  • Preexisting medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, epilepsy or lupus
  • Concerns about your baby’s growth or condition
  • Concerns regarding environmental or medication exposures
  • Behavioral health concerns, such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disease or post-traumatic stress disorder

Consultations Before Pregnancy

    If you have a chronic health condition or experienced pregnancy complications in the past, ask about preconception consultations with an MFM specialist at Stamford Health. Rely on us to review your medical history and help you plan for the healthiest possible pregnancy.

    Coordinated Care

      Your MFM supplements, but does not replace, the care of your primary obstetrician (OB). Rely on your MFM to work with your OB and other specialists when caring for you and your baby.
